Sweet Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs

Here is a card I made for my monthly stamping ladies, hi girls.  Becky, we missed you this week, hope you are having fun in Florida.


I began with a new embossing plate soon to be available at Sweet Stamps.  After embossing my Cryogen paper, I added ink to the raised image with Frayed Burlap Distress ink.  It really gives it a vintage look.  Next came all the layers.  Using my Cheery Lynn Designs XL Scallop Coved Rectangle Stacker I die cut the brown panel, adding some distress ink around the edges, then die cut the white panel with my Cheery Lynn Designs XL Coved Rectangle Stacker.  I gave it some texture by using my Rectangle Stitching plate, once again adding some distress ink.  I used my Cheery Lynn Designs Little Stackers Oval nesting dies for the center panels, again adding distress ink.  I stamped Thank You from Sweet Stamps with the same Frayed Burlap Distress ink and popped up the ovals with dimensionals.  I also distressed the ribbon with the same ink, added some pearl accents and it was done.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.
